Atomic Age Red Plastic & Brass Small Table Lamp
This is an absolutely wonderful Atomic Age Red Plastic & Brass Small Table Lamp. I’ve never seen another! Perfect for that small desk or for use as accent lighting in a small space. It has been rewired with matching braided red wire and is working beautifully.
The lamp has a futuristic 1950s Space Age design: it reminds me of the Apollo Space Capsule or a chemical molecule. Comprises a red plastic and brass base, and three brass legs with red plastic bobble feet at the end. A modern LED light bulb gives the lamp a very retro feel and makes the whole ensemble look like a 1950s idea of an alien! The bulb is included.
The cream plastic switch is located on the main body of the lamp and is turned to switch the lamp on/off. It can also be switched on/off via the new brass bayonet bulb holder. The lamp has been electrically tested via a calibrated PAT (portable appliance test) tester.
In very good condition, the red paint and legs do have some scuffs and surface scratches commensurate with age and use.
Height (excluding bulb): 24cm
Width (from leg to leg): 17.4cm
Diameter at the top of the capsule: 10cm (4″)
A perfect lamp for the 1950s home or the UFO aficionado!
